The 2023 Women’s Football World Cup starts on 20th July and one of the host nations is offering the ultimate fan experience.
One lucky Australian Fan will be able to experience the Matildas-themed penthouse at The Star Grand Hotel Sydney, where they will be met by former Matildas player, Michelle Heyman, and get tickets to the first Matildas’ game on 20th July.
The luxury stay offers the ultimate football ‘stay and play’ experience as a homage to Australia’s women’s national football team, the mighty CommBank Matildas, and is available for two nights to coincide with the Australia v Republic of Ireland match on 20 July. The luxury two-level penthouse has been completely transformed into a football fan’s paradise where one lucky competition winner and their three guests can live, breathe (and sleep) football. Offering breathtaking views of spectacular Sydney Harbour and the Sydney Harbour Bridge, from ceiling to floor, everything has been meticulously curated to pay homage to Australia’s national women’s team. Styled in striking green and gold, a giant four metre long Matildas scarf hangs above the suite’s shelves, filled with football themed ornaments and books charting the history of the CommBank Matildas. From the lavish master bedroom, a stunning staircase, adorned with inspirational football quotes, winds down toward an in-room foosball table to get into the competitive spirit.
Michelle Heyman, former Matilda player and A-League Women’s record goal scorer, said: “This is the ultimate experience for any football fan! Not only do you get to stay in this incredible football suite, you get to fully immerse yourself in the Matildas hype ahead of their first match on home soil. You even get tickets to the Matildas sold out opening game, so overall it’s a money can’t buy experience and an incredible way to get behind the Matildas and celebrate women’s sport here in Sydney.”
For the opportunity to win a stay at the CommBank Matildas’ Fan Suite in Sydney and become part of sporting history, fans need to head to The Star website and describe in 25 words or less why Sydney is the best city in the world to see the Matildas play in the upcoming women’s football tournament.
